The Slaving Of The Soul For The Body

image source: quia.com

If anyone thinks he needs more money

In order to fulfill the desires of the flesh.

His soul is burdened to find the means.

 

So day and night sleep escapes him

And in trying to gratify his fleshly desires

The soul is thereby enslaved.

 

We are taught that the soul is divine

And that it alone must rule the flesh.

For the soul and the flesh are opposites.
